View Full Version : Series that SHOULD be movies.

October 10th, 2009, 3:01 AM
This is a thread to suggest book/anime/cartoon/book/manga series that SHOULD be movies instead of the crap they feed us at the movie theatres.

Here are my thoughts

First off. there is no need for a Dragon Ball Z live action movie. ever. I think they should have done a live action movie of D.N.Angel in it's place

Also, I believe Phineas and Ferb would make a good family live-action movie as "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs" looks really stupid.

And Twilight needs to be shot and left to die. They ruined it. I think a live-action 3D movie version of the "Danny Phantom" series should've been done in it's place. Vampires shouldn't sparkle.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

Where the hell is my Friends Reunion movie? Sex and the City had one so yeah.

FlashForward has always looked extremely movie-like to me. XD But eh, I enjoy the new things that add to the storyline.

The Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Series. Even though it's just acts and the special act goes up to a hour. They could however make up a newer storyline for a movie.

The Legend of Zelda!! WOO! (if that counts, its a videogame) If not, then I think they should remake Eragon.. that movie.. was... bad.

Uh, I'd love to see one of my favorite books, Prayers for the Assassin, turned into a film. It'd definitely be a good drama-thriller.

How about video games? I'd love to see an Assassin's Creed movie some day. :P As for an anime, I can see The Girl Who Leapt Through Time turned into a live-action film. I honestly can't think of anything else. :(

I hope for Krypto the Super Dog!

Wow. everyone cares about movies... O.o I agree. the legend of Zelda should have a movie. There was a trailor for one a while back, but it turned out to be fake. And of course video games count. I was just tired when I made this thread and couldn't think.

The Day After Tomorrow series would be a pretty awesome movie series imo.

The Abarat and Sabriel books OwO

Though I think Disney now owns the rights to any possible Abarat movies...*sigh*

the Sabriel book series would make an epic movie series!

There are times when I dream of the Mother Trilogy being movies.

I can imagine it now, Itoi's name is fading away, while "Mother Earth" plays its sweet, nostalgic sounds. Then, a pitch-black screen appears, showing the title, MOTHER, with the O replaced by a slowly spinning globe in 8-bit graphics... Then, the 8-bit title will fade away and words come up on screen;
"It was the early 1980's rural U.S.A., and there was a couple, who mysteriously disappeared, Maria and George. Years later, George cam back... Soon, George started a private study all to himself, never speaking of Maria ever again."

Oh! I wish it was a movie... I wish all 3 of them were movies...

Yeah But With Disney....No Chance.
Hmmm.......Maybe a Kingdom Hearts Movie? That would be awesome! *_*

There should be a movie trilogy for Final Fantasy II. It was the only FF game below 6 to not have a generic FF plot(collect the crystals).

October 11th, 2009, 3:12 AM
Or a Final Fantasy 6 Movie. The it could be awesoeme!

October 11th, 2009, 8:50 AM
I would like to see a Halo movie. T.T

Other than that, I can't think of a movie they should make for a TV series. lol

The Power of Five Books deserve movies. If there was a movie, it better not give Horowitz a bad name. I love his books. =P

its not just a video game there was also a very bad cartoon of it.
I saw an episode of that once. it made me laugh. "Excuse me, princess!!" goodness that show was disturbing.

Cherub series by Robert Muchamore? They are a prettygood series.

October 11th, 2009, 9:18 PM
Hmmm.......Maybe a Kingdom Hearts Movie? That would be awesome! *_*


I think LoZ and Code Geass might make some good movies.

October 11th, 2009, 9:33 PM
How about a non-animated TV show? I'm thinking Arrested Development, which I watched religiously until its untimely demise.

Danny Phantom, perhaps a sequal to the Thunderbirds live action film. Dexters lab XD

October 12th, 2009, 1:04 PM
I think that Star Wars The Force Unleashed should get a movie
and so should Family Guy

October 12th, 2009, 10:15 PM
Danny Phantom

October 13th, 2009, 1:00 AM
I can agree with Danny Phantom that would a good show, I'd like to to see the fairly odd parents as a movie :D

October 13th, 2009, 3:19 AM
A pokemon live action movie would OWN the box offices, it would make oven more money than Shreck or Harry Potter, cause it's Pokemon for petes sake. I also agree with the Danny Phantom live action movie idea.......

pikmin should get a movie!.....yes im serious!!!

October 13th, 2009, 10:19 AM
Father of the Pride and Star Fox Adventures!

October 15th, 2009, 3:12 PM
I think Tim Burton could do a nice job with xxxHolic, or they just need to do a movie of xxxHolic

i think Legal Drug, Angelic Layer, Ouran High School Host club might be an ok movie. OK, all series done by clamp need either a show or a movie.....
they need to remake Eragon they ruined it the first time.
they need to make all Tamora Pierce books into movies
they need to make all Redwall books into movies, i think they should make W Juliet movie(manga is all its got right now), Hana-Kimi needs a movie *gasps* to many brain over loading will post more books needing movies now
Once Were Cops would make a really good movie
Sea Hunter would make a really good movie
The Wave Walkers series would make a really good movie
Vampirates could be a really well done movie series

i can't think of any more right now but i for shure will post many more titles
(p.s. they should not make a movie out of The lightning theif the series sucked and i hated them they are just going to kill people with the horrible movie they are making for it)

Well, I was thinking that TUGS and Theodore Tugboat could have had a movie. (Thomas The Tank Engine has one already)

I was also thinking that Mermaid Melody, Tokyo Mew Mew, Kirarin Revolution, and Gakuen Alice could have movies as well.

October 20th, 2009, 7:01 PM
I would love to see Ace Attorney games series getting an animated movie. Other than that, a tv series of it would be interesting.
